A lot of people will look at their pizza (thin or deep) and definitely get the feeling that this is a cousin to Lou Malnati's. Same type of butter crust, but Pizano's has much more of a traditional pizza sauce compared to Lou's. Pizano's has multiple locations, but their newest is on Indiana and Cullerton which is directly across from DePaul's new Basketball arena by the McCormick Center. This place is huge! Much more of a sports bar feel and they are putting all their chips in on this new arena and the crowds that will be coming from it. I think if you're looking for a solid pizza, with good service and not have to wait in the long lines of the traditional pizza "hot spots" this is a great place to check out.
